Tripepi Smith has renewed its sponsorship of the California City Management Foundation (CCMF) as a Corporate Benefactor for the 2020-21 program year, marking one decade of consecutive partnership with the Foundation.

“Thank you to Tripepi Smith for your support as a Corporate Benefactor sponsor and communications partner,” said CCMF President Ken Striplin. “Tripepi Smith and CCMF share the same mission to improve local governments across California. We’re grateful to have Tripepi Smith’s steady support as we pursue excellence in the city management community.”

CCMF supports city managers in their profession by creating networking opportunities between city managers, providing resources and offering education, training and career transition help to current and future city managers. The organization also supports policies that will ensure successful, manageable and enduring cities. CCMF works with the International City/County Management Association (ICMA) – another Tripepi Smith partner – to foster a worldwide community of city managers and introduce evolving best practices and ethical standards.

Tripepi Smith has a long-standing relationship with CCMF dating back to 2001. Tripepi Smith has provided ongoing social media and newsletter creation services to the Foundation for nearly a decade, and now provides a wide range of communications and technical support. In 2012, Tripepi Smith produced a series of videos featuring interviews with city managers from around California. Later that year, when CCMF planned to host their first webinar, they came to Tripepi Smith for facilitation services. Tripepi Smith also developed CCMF’s website in 2013 and redesigned the site in 2020.

“CCMF has established itself as an essential resource for city managers. Its value has become more obvious now as city managers look to each other for lessons from their shared experiences responding to the pandemic,” said Tripepi Smith President Ryder Todd Smith. “CCMF is our oldest client, and it was one of the first organizations we chose to sponsor as we grew. We’re proud to be able to return the favor and support the organization’s future goals.”
